Have you tried the Hot Off the Press Templates to jazz up your cards and scrapbook pages? They add flair without a lot of work. This card is one that I made quickly, but it has different focal point that I created using the Diamond Folds #2 Template. I used DCWV Metallic Cardstock for the base of the card. Then I took a piece of matching patterned paper and simply traced a diamond fold pattern onto the front of the paper. Then, using a craft knife, I cut the pattern. Before I folded the diamond shapes back, I inked the white side of the paper with a silver ink pad before folding the cut diamond folds back. I give these templates five stars! They’re becoming favorites of mine. You can get one here: http://www.dinglefoot.com/store-products-7312-Diamond-Folds-2-Template_40934364.html
